Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

My third watch.
The definition of "lightning in a bottle" and just about the best thing ever shot. Somehow a fun, head-banging concert film is one of the most genuinely powerful statements on modern alienation, the illusion of hierarchy, and the importance of community, all while sporting a strange sense of awkward, paranoid, ironic comic energy right underneath its oversized suit. Probably the greatest artistic event of the 20th century.
